We spent 4 nights at the Whitsunday Moorings Bed and Breakfast in Airlie during our holiday to Australia and it was perfect in every way. From the divine breakfasts served every morning by our most gracious host and owner, Peter, to the fabulous views over the marina at sunset, to the gorgeous pool and hammock. This really was a haven in what is actually a gentle, if transient, town.
The four nights we stayed at the Whitsunday Moorings were broken up by three spent on the beautiful Pacific Sunrise boat and Peter was kind enough to store our spare luggage for us during that time. Nothing was too difficult for Peter and he was not only knowledgeable about the area, but incredibly generous with his time and any resources he had, helping us book a fantastic flight over the islands.
There are only 3 rooms available and each is a mini apartment with a bedroom and lounge area; seperate kitchen with fridge, microwave and hob; ensuite with a power shower and beautiful English products. Each apartment has a terrace area on which breakfast (and what a breakfast it is) is served every morning whilst the Rainbow Lorikeets sweep above the garden in search of their own breakfast.
We booked through Bob and Libby at Whitsunday Accomodation and Tours and they were also fabulously helpful in every way.
Whether you are coming to Airlie for one night or one week I cannot recommend Whitsunday Moorings highly enough!
